    Notes 
    • RICHISON - Correspondence:16 [from Frank Vaughn Richison letter]
      "Never having known my grandfather Alexander, I have to rely on word of mouth from my mother in anything relating to him. I was told that I was not named after him because his was Thomas Franklin and not Thomas Frank. After Mary Ann Courtney Alexander died, he married a woman by the name of Sarah Green. She did not say very much about her, so I don't know any more that [sic] that."
